SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Breeze Airways, the Seriously Nice™ new U.S. low-fare airline founded by aviation entrepreneur David Neeleman, has been ranked second of the 10 best U.S. domestic airlines in 2021, according to Travel + Leisure readers.
Every year Travel + Leisure hosts its World’s Best Awards survey that is distributed amongst its readers. The survey asks readers to share their insights from their travels, voicing thoughts on resorts, hotels, cruise ships, cities, and more.
In the airlines category, readers ranked their top choices based on cabin comfort, in-flight service, food, customer service, and value. T+L readers noted Breeze’s affordability, spacious legroom, nice flight crew, and easy online booking system.
“We started service around Memorial Day last year, only operating for seven months of 2021,” said David Neeleman, Breeze Airways Chairman and CEO. “To be named among the likes of Hawaiian, JetBlue, Delta, and Alaska on a list of the top U.S. domestic airlines in 2021 is a huge honor and a testament to the hard work our Team Members are putting in daily. Together, we’re building a Seriously Nice™ airline, by making travel for our Guests easy, affordable, and flexible. This recognition shows we’re on the right track…and we’re just getting started!”
The list, which is usually comprised of five airlines, was expanded to 10 this year due to the growing number of U.S. domestic airline carriers. Breeze was No. 2, coming in just behind Hawaiian Airlines. Following Breeze was JetBlue at No. 3, Alaska Airlines at No. 4, and Delta Airlines at No. 5.
